In 11 days, our church is kicking off our "OnePrayer" campaign. We — like 1000's of churches around the world — are setting aside 4-weeks at some point this summer to partner together…and to pray. We are going to come together, pray together, learn together, & love others
There are really 3 phases to "OnePrayer":
(Phase #1) Shared Prayer — During this 4-week series, we will pray together with
churches. For 26 straight days, we'll follow a daily prayer guide, reflect on the same Bible verses, and lift up the same prayers. We'll even fast together on Tuesdays (skipping 1-3 meals…using that time to pray instead).
(Phase #2) Shared Study — We'll be studying a series called "God Is…" together. A boatload of pastors preached a message earlier this year on the topic "God Is…" Each participating church gets to choose which of those messages to study in their church. We picked out these:
- July 19 –- “God is Love” (Craig
- July 26 –- “God is Faithful” (Andy
- Aug 2 –- “God is Great” (Steven Furtick)
- Aug 9 -– “God is Here” (Perry Noble)
(Phase #3) Shared Service – Every participating church adopted a
service project to love people beyond their wall together. Grace Church will be supporting Freedom Fire
Urban Ministries in downtown KCMO. We already partner with their ministry on a regular basis (see the bottom of this web page). We’re asking our church to purchase backpack & school supplies for the kids ministered to by Freedom
Fire. We'll be looking for 100-150 backpacks.
Guys, this will be a FANTASTIC opportunity to see how God
moves as we pray together –- learn about God together –- and serve
